Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said he found Sinn Féin’s idea of keeping the Justice portfolio “highly disturbing” and “repugnant,” reports Independent.
Speaking to RTÉ’s The Week in Politics, Mr Varadkar described the prospect of a Sinn Féin justice minister being appointed as “highly disturbing” this afternoon.
“The idea of there being a Sinn Féin justice minister or foreign affairs minister or defence minister is repugnant to me,” he added, reports Independent.
“There’s a lot of people talking about some of the horrific things that are happening in the Middle East. We have in Sinn Féin a party that will not acknowledge war crimes that may have happened in this country, and they [the crimes] still need to be investigated and those people need to be brought to justice and the families need to get the answers and justice that they need and that wouldn’t happen under Sinn Féin,” reports Independent.
In a wide-ranging interview, the Fine Gael leader also addressed illegal immigration.
